I am all for maintaining a level of equal rights in society for all those of its citizens regardless of any minority sub-status after the main menu
heading of citizenship. We also need to insure the rights of our official guests and also treat the unofficial ones with the necessary civility.
I have a huge headache with the political concept of "equality". It does not work on the human level.
I am just a guy from the UK from a working class family and if I officially migrated to say the States or Germany or anywhere else I would not expect
to automatically be given privileges that the citizens of my new home had earned through generations of working and surviving. If I moved to the
States I would think well I will have to start off at the bottom and raise myself on my own proof and demonstration of loyalty to my adopted home and
contribute if I care that much I want to make another nation my home. I would not expect to be treated like a Prince just because I am a migrant.
That is where this Liberal political ideology of "equality" falls flat on its face. It is not achievable without some serious "engineering" that will
totally mess up the whole machine and put a political fly in the ointment.
If I had some serious skill that my new home needed of course then I have already bought my ticket to the "Promised Land". We need to allow some room
for measurement of rights. It is crazy to think that as a society we can give newcomers the world on a platter. It never did work like that. Also we
must understand that to have newcomers requires all manner of expansion of resources relating to education and health. If we do not fund the expansion
we will start making the socieities poorer. Does that ring a bell with you? It does with me.
If I came to the States or Australia to live it would be because it really mattered to me enough to take my place at the beginning. How useful really
is the "equality" model? It is very useful to communism, but it will cause a lot of political trouble in other systems. I think I am seeing that
happen right before my very eyes. It is just the tip of the iceberg too. I think we need a serious rethink here. If any kind of Liberalism is going to
survive it must restrain itself and gain relevance. The reality does not fit with these ideological illusions and they are having a destructive
There are very serious and very real political reasons why people react to large intakes of new people into societies. It can have a huge impact and
even bring poverty. I think I see some of that happening. We are already having to make do with more sharing less, especially with austerity enacted
upon us at the same time as a huge influx. What on earth does anyone expect to happen when you turn the screws on a nation like that? I think we have
been generally pretty civil in our collective response.
We can't expect to go to another nation as a desperate person and expecrt them to say, "Hi, here is your lead role in the next Hollywood movie". There
has to be some realism here and I don't think the political buzz-word "equality" is doing us any favours at all because it has no practical
application that is beneficial. It expects standards that aren't possible in reality without some serious tampering that will make everyone stop
striving like a stagnant old communist beast of a system where it is pointless to bother. That will never be good for any market.
